PAINTINGS & prints

Welcome to The Jitterbug Studio! I am a mixed media artist, working in a whimsical, often folk-art inspired style. My beachside garden studio overlooks the waters of White Rock, Canada.  When I'm not painting, or at the beach, I am hunting for amazing vintage finds!  You can find me at many of the local antique and art markets or shop for my work in my online stores.

I create several different collections of artwork - including original paintings, giftware and prints. I work in several different mediums, including Watercolours, Alcohol Inks, Acrylic paint & Mixed Media. I like to use found objects and vintage ephemera in my paintings, incorporating some of the treasures I have salvaged during my years of work as an antique dealer.

I print my artwork onto a wide selection of giftware as well as canvas and paper prints.

You can browse a few samples here or visit my Etsy Site to shop.

Silhouette Series

These whimsical, folk-art style paintings use elemental forms, colour & texture to create sweet but beautiful scenes. I make them using layers of vintage sheet music & maps that I cut into shapes and dye by hand using a combination of inks and paint. I also incorporate antique skeleton keys, bits of wood, bakers twine & other found objects. Each piece is one of a kind, but I do paint them in series, so you can create groupings on your wall. Each comes with a signed authenticity card, and the 6”x8” artwork each come with a nice white gift box to make your gift-giving easier.

Come see them in person at one of my upcoming markets or in select retail locations. Please follow me on Instagram to see my latest artwork for sale, or contact me to inquire about a particular painting.


Most of my artwork is available in a wide range of gift products - including Postcards, Greeting Cards, Gift Tags, Bookmarks, Spiral Bound Notebooks, Canvas Bound Booklets, Coasters, Magnets, Mugs and more.  

Look out for new products coming soon to my Etsy Shops, the many Markets I attend and in select retail locations.

The Jitterbug was a dance invented in underground jazz clubs in the 1930's & involved all manner of inspired improvisation leaving you feeling free and uninhibited.

I often feel like a Jitterbug... inspired in many creative directions & rarely sitting still.
